Interested in learning more about the parks? Ranger-led programs give you the opportunity to explore in-depth and ask questions. Programs are presented by both national park rangers and naturalists with the Sequoia Parks Conservancy.

We offer the widest variety and number of ranger-led programs from late June through August. In winter, our popular ranger-guided snowshoe walks are a great way to explore. When you arrive, check visitor centers and bulletin boards in each area for program details or schedule changes.

Check our park map for locations. There is about a one-hour drive between each of the following areas: the Foothills, Giant Forest/Lodgepole, Grant Grove, and Cedar Grove. Mineral King is about a 1-1/2 hour drive from the turnoff at Hwy 198.


Sequoia Parks Conservancy Programs

Join our partner, the Sequoia Parks Conservancy, for a naturalist program. Their December schedule includes snowshoe walks and hikes in Giant Forest and on the Buena Vista and Tokopah Falls trails.

In addition to the programs on the calendar, a stargazing program will be offered on Friday, December 9 from 7-8 pm at Three Rivers Union School's upper field.

On Saturday, December 17th, the Sequoia Parks Conservancy will sponsor the Great Christmas Bird Count. The event is open to people of all ages and abilities. Register for the bird count through the Sequoia Parks Conservancy for free park entrance on the day of the event.
